Julian Nagelsmann ‘pulls OUT of the running to become Chelsea head coach’

BREAKING NEWS: Julian Nagelsmann PULLS OUT of the running to be Chelsea manager, leaving just Mauricio Pochettino, shock pick Vincent Kompany and one other mystery candidate on the shortlist

  • Nagelsmann was understood to be one of four leading contenders in the frame
  • But the former Bayern Munich boss has now withdrawn himself from discussions
  • It comes as a huge blow to Chelsea co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali 

Julian Nagelsmann is no longer in the running to become Chelsea boss after pulling out of the race to replace Graham Potter.

Nagelsmann was among four leading candidates shortlisted by the Blues, along with former Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany, as they step up the search for their next permanent head coach following the sacking of Potter earlier this month.

Yet following multiple discussions with Stamford Bridge chiefs, the former Bayern Munich manager has withdrawn from talks and has therefore ruled himself out of contention for the job.

His decision is understood to be final, meaning Chelsea co-owners Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali will be forced to remove his name from their managerial shortlist.

Along with Nagelsmann, Boehly and Eghbali identified former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, promotion-winning Burnley boss Kompany and one other mystery candidate as potential options.

Luis Enrique also held face-to-face talks over the possibility of joining Chelsea, only for The Telegraph to reveal this week that he is no longer on their shortlist. 

Nagelsmann emerged as one of the frontrunners to take the reins at Stamford Bridge just one month after being sacked by Bayern. 

Despite winning the Bundesliga in his first season, the 35-year-old paid the price following reports of bust-ups with senior players and a run of five wins in nine matches which let Borussia Dortmund back into the title race.
